Would You Go See These Movies-Turned-Operas?

First there was the odd news that an Italian composer is turning the Al Gore power point presentation about global warming into an opera. Now there's news that Brokeback Mountain will get similar treatment. The New York City Opera has commissioned a composer to turn the short story that inspired the popular film into an opera.

Of course, the documentary-turned-opera is more difficult to envision than a well-received love story but I still think this is a bizarre trend, and I wonder what's behind this momentum. Presumably the folks behind these shows think they're more likely to attract a broader audience with operas based on well-known titles.

So I ask you: would you consider seeing these operas?

Free tickets for sure except for anything having to do with Al Gore, he's such a bore and a liar.

Is it so much to ask that someone come up with an original idea once in a while? I'm so sick of rehashed concepts!
